best seafood restaurants

My husband and I are coming down for a weekend getaway and im dying for fresh seafood. We haven't been to the area in years so im not sure where to start. He likes crab legs and I prefer shrimp! Any help would be great!

First to mind are Jakes (either in town or out on Rt 1) or Big Fish Grill just before Dewey.

If you mean king crab legs and the nice big pink shrimp, neither is locally harvested and may well have arrived in Delaware frozen. Flash frozen on the fishing boat, perhaps, but probably not fresh. For fresh crab, you want blue crab. If you don't want to eat it whole, you can get crab cocktail at some places. Or crab cakes are more widely available. Fins is another good place for seafood.

We also like Big Fish in Rehoboth. We have had some great meals there. We recently had really good fresh, local Rockfish at Striper Bites in Lewes. For blue claw crabs, shrimp and clams we usually go to Ed's Crabs in Dewey. I would like to try the Surfing Crab in Lewes though.
